Shirley Zerf

Mindfulness and solution based therapist. I am a solution based counsellor, breakthrough coach and mindfulness teacher.. I see people on a one to one basis and I also hold workshops and courses. I have spent many years studying the mind and am fascinated by how the mind works. I studied Psychodynamic Psychotherapy but discovered that I prefer to work as a solution based counsellor and personal coach. The neuroscientists have discovered empirical evidence of the neuroplasticity that is facilitated by mindfulness and meditation and it has a profound effect in the way I work. The psychology and practice of mindfulness has had deeply transformative results in my life and I love nothing better than sharing my knowledge with people who want to help themselves.
